When will my head grow old?

When will my head grow old?
Maybe, by the age of fifty,
I should have calmed
Down a bit.
But that would be
The same as dying.
Wouldn't it?

Takers
Takers have it good-
They gain your trust
And feed on your love,
Then distance themselves
From the pain
They have caused,
Knowing full well
You´d do none of the above.

Givers
Givers have it good-
In you they trust,
And eminate love.
They cuddle and
Bask in honesty.
Knowing full well,
You may never do
Any of the above.
